    Jeff,

    This is an Ad-Aware problem, not a Win XP problem. I googled "AdAware Error
    2343". There were numerous hits and I found that this, apparently, is a
    common problem without any easy solution. I would search Google or contact
    Lavasoft for assistance.

    Do yourself a favor and drop Ad-Aware. I dropped it over a year ago. It is bloated
    and is useless at this time
    Is the following 2 which is far superior to Ad-Aware

    Use the free versions

    Download, install, run, update and perform a full scan (separately) with the
    following two applications (freeware versions are the ones to use for this):

    SuperAntiSpyware
    http://www.superantispyware.com/

    MalwareBytes
    http://www.malwarebytes.com/

    I agree (as you probably already know) that SuperAntiSpyware
    and MalwareBytes are both better than Ad-Aware. But I don't agree that
    it's useless. I run it (in addition to SuperAntiSpyware and
    MalwareBytes Anti-Malware) and it often finds and deletes tracking
    cookies that the others don't find.

    It's an example of why it's important to run multiple anti-spyware
    programs. None of them is perfect and almost any of the good (or even
    just decent) programs will find things that others don't.
